While it did take while for these two to realize they were meant to be, West knew that Kardashian was the woman for him from the beginnings and couldn’t deny his attraction to her even if he tried.

Kardashian and West were friends before they started dating

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West might not have too many regrets in life, but one thing they wish they could turn back the hands of time for would be to have started dating a lot sooner than they did.

The couple chronicles the beginning of their relationship in an upcoming  E!’s True Hollywood Story episode, “Who is Kim Kardashian West?”

In the episode, Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and the “Jesus Walks” rapper open up about their relationship — which dates back to the early 2000s.

“I met Kanye in 2002,” said Kardashian West, 38. “He would ask everyone like who I was, and they always said like, ‘Oh she, you know, has a boyfriend.'”

Although the timing wasn’t right for the pair, they still established a friendship, which brought them closer over the years. “We just always kept on connecting and coming into each other’s lives.”

Despite there being a definite connection between Kardashian and West, the reality star soon found herself in a high profile relationship with Kris Humphries.

After just 72 days of marriage, Kardashian filed for divorce from the pro-basketball player.

The following year, Kardashian and West reconnected and the two no longer ignored their feelings for one another.

“And then he invited me to Paris to his fashion show and then that’s when it like happened. That’s when we started our relationship,” the KKW mogul said in her hour-long special.

“Then I was like, ‘Sh*t, why didn’t this happen sooner?'” she continued. “It was just right.”

Kardashian and West officially started dating in 2012, despite the rapper’s inner circle telling him that dating the reality star would greatly impact his career.

“Everyone would tell him, ‘You can’t be with her. She’s a reality star. She’s going to sink your career,’ ” Kardashian West said of the naysayers. “And he was just like, ‘But I love her. Like, I don’t care.’ “

The rapper felt strongly for Kardashian early on

Although many people had opinions people his relationship with Kardashian, West couldn’t ignore the feelings he had for her.

The reality star connected with the rapper on a level he’s never connected with anyone else on.

Kardashian had all of the qualities West was looking for in a partner and he knew early on that he wasn’t going to let her go.

During the E! True Hollywood Story, the Grammy winner recalls the feelings he had had for Kardashian right from the get-go.

“Anytime I was around her or I saw her, it was a magnetic attraction to this force of energy,” West shared. “She was good, pure, happy, loving, brave, courageous, strong,” he gushed over his now-wife.

Two years after the couple started dating, they held a lavish wedding ceremony in Florence, Italy.

Kardashian and West now have four children and couldn’t be happier with the life they share together.
